Future Young Leaders Program
The voice of the future
About the program
The Future Young Leaders Program is designed to build the capacity of emerging leaders from across Australia and New Zealand while providing a platform to share their views, ideas, stories, and passion for agriculture, to deliver, develop, adopt and export agrifood innovation to the world.
The seven 2023 Future Young Leaders attended the event as an evokeAG. ambassador where they had the opportunity to network, capacity build and showcase their idea in front of an audience on the main stage.
Our Future Young leaders are:
- Passionate individuals with an idea, story and are dedicated to advancing our our rural industries
- Young leaders who are motivated to promote a sustainable and innovative future for rural communities and are already taking steps to achieve this
- Aspiring individuals seeking opportunities to build-capacity, network and grow as a “voice of the future”.

Amy has a curiosity for the role that soils play in driving the health, production, and economic value of communities and hopes to be the voice for regenerative agricultural practices.
Growing up on a small sheep-farming property in the rolling hills of Central Victoria, developed her connection to the natural environment and as such has been a driving force for much of the work that she does to elevate youth voice, advocate for diversity, and centralise environmental respect.
“I deeply believe space-making, diverse co-designed policy, and the empowerment of connected communities, is fundamental to the future of sustainable agriculture in Australia.”
